I think there are ways in which shows can pop their heads up a little bit in the morass of everything you can watch.
In terms of likeability, that's something that I don't think about as an actor when I approach a role.
My entire life has been an attempt to get back to the kind of feelings you have on a field. The sense of brotherhood, the esprit de corps, the focus - there being no past or future, just the ball. As trite as it sounds, I was happiest playing ball.
I love dogs. They live in the moment and don't care about anything except affection and food. They're loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated.
Giorgio de Chirico
